ABC Blocks

An organized refusal to purchase the products of, do business with or perform services for (such as deliver goods) a company which is doing business with another company where the employees are on strike or in a labor dispute. example: big basket markets are being struck by the retail clerks union, and cupboard canning and wheato bread are selling foodstuffs to big basket. the teamsters union then refuses to deliver to cupboard and wheato and asks all its members not to buy from those companies, although cupboard and wheato are not involved directly in the labor dispute. such “secondary” boycotts are unfair labor practices under federal and many state laws and, thus, are illegal.
